The Pokemon GO Plus accessory, that will work in conjunction with the device you have Pokemon GO on, is now available for pre-order on Amazon. As shown on the page, you can wear it as a wristband, or clip it to a pocket so you have it wherever you think is best for you and your gaming. The release date is December 31st on Amazon, however, that usually indicates that a specific date is not available at present. Shigeru Miyamoto stated that he believes the game and accessory will be ready in July. Below is the official description:

“The Pokemon GO Plus accessory can be used with any compatible smart phone that has the Pokemon GO application installed. After the Pokemon GO Plus is paired via Bluetooth LE and a brief setup process is completed, players can encounter and catch Pokemon like never before. When the smart phone with Pokemon GO and the paired Pokemon GO Plus accessory are within range of each other, both will begin to vibrate when a Pokemon is close by. With the convenience of not having to look at your smart phone, simply press the button on the Pokemon GO Plus to attempt to catch a Pokemon while you are out and about.”

A separate description reveals more details about what the device can do:

  • Accessory for the Pokemon GO application provides an easy and convenient way to catch Pokemon and collect items
  • Catch Pokemon in the wild with a simple click of a button
  • Collect Poke Balls, Berries, Pokemon Eggs and other items at set PokeStop locations without having to look at your smart phone

    Last time I have heard of this game, it was cancelled for some reason. Good that they brought it back, because I really like the idea of having a real world virtual reality Pokemon game, and this is the way to get out of the slump that has been the last few Pokemon games. Don't get me wrong, they were good, but the games have become a little too formulaic for me. Get a starter, get a team, win matches. That's pretty much it.

    As a kid I always dreamed of having Pokemons in real life and interacting with them, seems like Virtual Reality is the closest thing to that. Pokemon GO seems like an interesting concept that I will definitely be interested in, we'll have to see if it lives up to the expectations.
